, bill clinton. >> enormous. oh, my god, that's bill clinton? he's here? i'm missing bill clinton by sitting here? >> talking to me. >> al, you know i see you a lot. >> ben affleck, "argo." >> there was this groundswell of people rooting for you especially because of what they felt was a snub from the oscar nominations. >> in terms of the oscars, look, i was thrilled, we got seven nominations including best picture. if you told me a year ago, would you take that, line me up. >> "girls," hbo. >> any time where you're reading the script or finishing a scene and thought, maybe we could have pulled back a little bit? >> no. >> no. >> probably not. >> does it put a little more pressure on you to ratchet things up or to make sure you keep things where they are? >> i think we're always pretty inspired to ratchet things up and we have sort of our own creative agenda. >> honestly, i think we can just coast now. coast on past glory. >> claire danes, "homeland." >> i have to thank, you know, our son now. my son, cyrus, who is up there with my parents. >> congratulations. >> thank you very mu
to when bill clinton tried it in 1993, a large majority of democrats in the house of representatives and was barely able to get anything done and now the republicans control the house of representatives and you put your finger on it, those taking additional steps, they are better organized and funded than the advocates and my best guess is most of the action here will be in the regulatory arena and the administration will look to see what they can do on their own, absent much prospect ultimately for significant legislation. >> chris: i want to broaden the conversation, because, whether the fiscal cliff or gun control, story of the day about a major immigration reform movement by the president, he seems to be, as he prepares for the inaugural, a more combative president, more confrontational, less interested even in the beginning in compromise. one, do you agree and, two, what does it say to you about prospects for his second term. >> i do and it is interesting. he was elected in by a more significant margin, notably more significant margin than he was reelected. he was not nearly the
to newt gingrich about what made bill clinton a great negotiator. he listened to find common ground. this is from the speaker of the house who worked to impeach the president. >> what's missing here, peggy? sometimes i think man nobody knows how to play the game any more to paraphrase casey stengel when he was managing the mets. >> it's true on the hill, speakers and such don't quite control their conferences and their caucuses as they have, but the most from interesting thing that i think-- that has been true of the past few weeks since the president was re-elected, is he's playing it in a way different from previous presidents. previous presidents get a win whether it's close or not and then they try to sort of put their arms about everybody and summon them in. we are essentially a if i felt-50 country still. so you would think the president would have spent the past few weeks going forward saying let's all be together. instead he has been very sharply, definitively "us guys versus you guys" by going at the republicans on hill, by speaking in a way that is very sour about why repu
president bill clinton showed up to introduce "lincoln." he got a standing ovation. among the other winners, "les miserables," daniel day-lewis from "lincoln." actress in a drama jessica chastain for "zero dark thirty." and actor in a comedy or musical hugh jackman for "les mis." >> there are so many movies i need to see. >>> so as toyota pulls ahead of general motors in worldwide car sales gm is out with a new corvette. look at this. the 2014 corvette stingray was unveiled yesterday at the auto show in detroit. it's the first new version of the popular muscle car in nine years. gm redesigned it to meet government safety and fuel requirements. the company has not put a price tag yet on this new corvette. but i'm thinking i wouldn't be able to afford it. >> lawrence is eyeballing it right now. >> he is.

to see in the progression of history when bill clinton became president, a generation had passed that world war ii group had moved and were no longer going to be presidents. it seems to me we are now past the vietnam stage wheith presidt obama. it is difficult for me. i think joe biden wants to be president and he'll run for president at this very moment, but i think it's a tough sell for both vice president biden and hillary clinton because you are going back a generation. part of this president's appeal has been to young people. >> it is. my experience in all of this is the same that once america moves forward a generation, it almost never moves back and that was a problem for the mccains and even the romneys of this world. however -- when you're the vp, you get one shot to extend. you are defined by the guy above you. so, you get to ride on the previous generation. >> he gets younger. >> he's the youngest guy in this town, too. >> benjamin button. >> i talked to a veteran democratic actrist strategist who has been involved and she told me within 48 hours she got a call from bo
with the federal response to hurricane katrina there was the iraq war. you also had, you know, bill clinton everybody remembers, what happened in his second term. what are the potential problems that lie ahead for this president? >> well, i think any president who wins a second term clearly wants to fet -- get a lot accomplished. they feel freed up to do the things they hope they wanted to do, they figure voters endorsed them and endorsed everything they said they were going to do. that is actually not the case. a lot of times voters decided they like the incumbent than the other guy, trusted him more than the other guy he was running against of the you have members from your own party, you're on your way out two years from now and four years from now, why do we have to stick our neck out for big things but we have to pay the price and we would like to stick around for a while. having said that, for all the problems bill clinton had in effect in his second term he pick up seats, his party did in the 1998 midterms. when you look at george w. bush and his presidency, republicans had been in c
